As the world continues to mourn the loss of one of basketball’s greatest players, Kobe Bryant, bootleggers are already trying to cash in on the situation. They are selling fake versions of Nike’s Kobe 6 Mambacita sneakers, which were created to honor Bryant’s daughter Gianna, who also perished in the helicopter crash. In this post, we will show you how to quickly spot and identify the Fake Nike Zoom Kobe 6 Mambacita Sweet 16. First, let’s go through our preliminaries.

. Smell the shoes ( only if you’ve already made the purchase)

One of the dead giveaway is the smell/odor of the glue uses to construct the replicas. If the glue smell is really strong to the point of irritating your nostrils, then you’ve probably being dealt a counterfeit

.Proof of Purchase

Ask for a proof of purchase. Receipt must include details such as provenance, time of purchase, date and any other relevant information. If a seller is reluctant to provide that, I will strongly urge to refrain from following through with the purchase.

Sides

As you can clearly see, the #2 is a bit smaller on the fake pair. I also want you to zero in on the glue stains at the edges of the midsole ( see red arrows). And don’t forget to also look at the poor crafstmanship at the edges of the heel liner ( see red square).

The “nike zoom” text on the midsole is too subtle on the fake. Moreover, the letters have wider fonts on the fake pair.

Toe Area

The toe box is too bumpy on the fake pair, see red arrow. And the scales are a bit more 3D on the authentic pair.

Midsole

Another major difference is the holes on the midsole. On the real pair, the holes are not deep but wide so you can see the white part. On the fakes, they appear to be deeper but narrower and are darker.

Back

The snaker graphic looks sloppy and smaller on the replica pair. There is more spacing between the elements on the fakes ( see horizontal arrows). The red arrows pointing up show you how the “K” and “E” have a slightly bigger font on the authentic pair. Also the “Kobe” text is too dull on the fakes.

Forefoot

The spacing between the scales is slightly wider on the fake pair. The black material adjacent to the edges of the midsole is wider on the replica pair ( see red lines).

Outsole

The pattern of the carbon fiber shank cannot be seen on the Fake Nike Zoom Kobe 6 Mambacita, it’s plainly dark ( see red arrows and ovals).

Heel TabReal Vs Fake Nike Zoom Kobe 6 Mambacita Sweet 16 7 heel liner

The heel tab is more padded on the legitimate pair and more extended as well. The stiches around the heel tab of the fake pair are loose, see red arrows.

The counterfeit pair was produced earlier than the fake. But dates aren’t always the most accurate way to bust a replicas. But it is worth mentioning. I do want to say that the area around the inside label is more rough on the authentic pair, but smooth on the fakes ( see arrow pointing down).

There you have it folks,  hopefully with these tips, you’ll be able to quickly legit check the Nike Zoom Kobe 6 Mambacita. I’ll update the post as soon as a new batch of fakes appears. In the meantime, do not buy this shoe from anyone unless all things above that I mentioned are cleared.
